she aint even got 5 passes so yeah they are bad .. my mocks were really bad but im trying to push them up in the real thing .. so with hard work and good c/w she can push them up in the real thing
To be honest, without five passes, or at the very least, passes in English and Maths, it is probably unlikely she'd be accepted on to academic courses. I was pathetic at Maths but I can honestly say that I'm pleased I eventually passed it because it's the first one that colleges and employers ask for. I had to sit it three times and I wish I'd persevered with it more at school because not having it limited my opportunites at the next stage of my education.
If I were you, I'd really encourage your sister to keep plugging away with Maths and English because even if she only got grade Cs in those, she'd probably find it more beneficial than passes in any other subject. It depends what she wants to do, really.
I presume the predictions are based on Mocks? If so, she'll still be learning new material in classes now and there's plenty of time for revising and maybe asking for extra help from teachers.
I don't want to sound harsh, but yeah, they're pretty bad. There's still time to push them up though- just make sure you encourage her to get the best possible marks on coursework and revise well. As others have said, the results won't matter much if she wants to leave school at 16, but she really needs to try and get Cs in English and maths for most jobs.
Get her to pull her socks up on maths, English and science especially.
Technicality aside, a D is tantamount to a fail... not many jobs/sixth forms/universities would accept it, anyway.
But even so, predicted grades don't mean much.
It's the real grades that matter, but with some decent revision, I'm sure she could go up a grade in some things, and hopefully get the 5 Cs and above that colleges are looking for. However, there's plenty of other courses at college that don't require the 5 Cs
Yes, they are bad. What does she want to do after GCSE's?
I will make her do some revision then.
Yeah 5 C grades is a minimum requirement for most things
Seems a bit weird to be studying for 10 GCSEs when it means her predicted grades end up low. Surely dropping, say, Geography and Graphics, would mean a better chance of Maths/Eng ending up at C or above?
